MTC Software, a Hypertherm brand, has launched the latest version of its CAM nesting software, ProNest 2010. The software incorporates improvements to standard features, optional modules, and machine setups.
With this version, users have more control when working with CAD files, the company states. Unwanted layers can be deleted, and entities can be reassigned to a different process. A third nesting criteria called Class gives users more control over how a nest is processed. In addition, a new archiving tool allows users to back up settings for safekeeping.
Optional modules have been upgraded, including collision avoidance, pipe, plate inventory, skeleton cut-up, and bevel. Machine setups also have been enhanced to help improve cut quality on plasma, laser, and waterjet systems.
